This all must have been a long time coming…
Johnny Manziel is currently making headlines for refusing to enter rehab, but it sounds like his downfall has been in the works for a while.
That's because it was just revealed on Wednesday that Nike dropped the 23-year-old quarterback sometime after the 2015 NFL season, despite only just partnering with him in 2014!

Nike spokesman Brian Strong confirmed they fired the athlete way back on March 11 of last year, almost immediately after he finished rehab the first time.
As you may recall, Johnny's manager Drew Rosenhaus also dropped the former Cleveland Browns QB on Tuesday, and now we understand why — he wasn't making any money!
All of this combined with his pending domestic abuse case must be taking its toll on Johnny Football…
Get well soon, Johnny.
